The Ferry Building Marketplace: San Francisco

Ferry Building Marketplace
The Ferry Building Marketplace, a historic San Francisco building converted into a gourmet mall of sorts, is a gastronome’s shopping and dining dream. Literally every “stall” is food-related and CUESA’s Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays make it even more worthwhile–didn’t make it to the Farmers’ Market because I was headed to The French Laundry for lunch. I could spend hours in here and suggest you do a good fast before entering because you won’t be able to stop eating or shopping.

As I said, there are so many stores worth visiting in the building. I had to break up my shopping and eating into two days. There was really no way to hit them all and save my diet (40 lbs gone if you are interested though I am not sure after this trip!). The following posts are some, definitely not all, of my favorites.

    I love the Ferry Building. So many amazing little food shops and kiosks.

    Have you eaten at The Slanted Door which is insdie the Ferry Building? One of my favorite SF places.
